EU Constitution

Today we listened to a presentation at the Heritage Foundation by Dr. Fox, member of the UK parliament. He spoke on the EU Constitution and on the good/bad effects of the EU, particularly on the US.

What I mainly got out of it was the great struggle in uniting the European Union. One of the big rifts in the European union is that some want it to be completely centralized, while others want countries to maintain more of their own identity. It is hard on many European countries that want to maintain their identity, especially economically. The Euro was the best possible way to trash the economic identities in European countries. If things don't start working out for the EU (and it really doesn't look like they will), I think they will have to take steps backwards towards more country individuality.
